The Philadelphia Police Department posted a video recently of a crime made possible by the victim's inattention while tending to a simple task.
On Mar. 5, a 35-year-old male was pumping gas while a 4-door sedan stopped slightly to his left. As the video above shows, a passenger then exited the sedan and entered the victim's car and drove away, tearing the hose from the pump.
Both vehicles then fled the scene.
